Sesame Street

spoken: Animal Department Store, elevator going down!
( the same voice says the parts in brackets )

A kitty and a cat with mittens brand new
Got into an elevator (top floor)
Then there were two
1, 2 !

Two little animals feeling carefree
A bull came from market
Then there were three
1, 2, 3 !

Three little animals waiting to arrive
In came a mule and a mare
And then there were five
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 !

Five little animals acting sedate
The Doggy family joined them
And then there were eight
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 !

Eight little animals standing in a line
Shep the sheep sauntered in
And then there were nine
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 !

Nine little animals waiting yet again
Mr. Hog got on
And then there were ten
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 !

Ten little animals, the ride's all done
Left the elevator empty (ground floor)
Then there were none
